Reznicek won Best Medium-Sized List when Star Wine List of the Year Austria 2022 was celebrated on May 23. The category recognizes the best list with 200-600 references and was presented by Weingut Wieninger & Weingut Hajszan Neumann.
"I'm overwhelmed. We've only been open for eight weeks. Even being nominated together with all these great places and great people was totally overwhelming, and winning this prize was totally unexpected. I'm speechless," says Simon Schubert, owner and sommelier at Reznicek.
Jury member Salvatore Castano, Best Sommelier of Europe and Africa 2021, says:
"Reznicek has an outstanding selection of wines, rich and classic, full of top producers and very easy to understand. Well made and the prices are great."
